So, About Those Olympics

Man, I've been really bad about blogging lately. I picked a project for the Olympics, Streamside by Cecily Glowik MacDonald. I bought Miss Babs Yowza in Catherine last year to make it. Then I swatched it just before the Olympics and found out it's too thin for the project. I made a quick change to Angostura by Ysolda Teague. The Olympics started one week ago and I've finished the back and gotten started on the front.

I should finish in time so long as nothing huge gets in my way.

Just before the Olympics started I pulled out my Narwhal mittens, also by Ysolda, and got going on them again. I had already finished the first one (minus the thumb) and knit the cuff for the second. I am about 1" shy of finishing the second mitten and was knitting on them furiously last Friday before the Olympics started. I'm really looking forward to finishing this vest so I can back to finishing those mittens.
